is becoming a concept of the past. in fact, robots are now being credited for keeping jobs in the u.s. >> what robots are able to do is they're i believe -- they're able to make companies more competitive. so we've seen that companies have stopped moving manufacturing overseas and some companies are starting to bring that back. >> reporter: john is the ceo of the silicon valley based company adept. here they're building bots that work with and can move around people. others don't mingle in the hallway as much but people still run them, so man and machine both have a job. >> it's really not replacing jobs. it's really placing employees to a higher skill set and more technical jobs. >> reporter: at earth bound farms, they put five of these robots to work at the cost of nearly a million. they say they haven't laid off a single worker. it still takes a lot of human labor to package the salad, but now the bots do the most repetitive and laborious part. >> reporter: the company is betting they'll be able to program the robots to improve, leading to lower prices and improved employee benefi
relative ly modest in the u.s. and that's reflected in the jobs number. this is an encouraging month. you never want to make too much out of any one month. >> i was surprised at the numbers. ed, what do you think? >> i think there are good things that each candidate can take out of it. obviously the fact the unemployment rate ticked up to something governor romney will emphasize, higher than when the president took office. that's the headline number. i agree with austan. the fact you had 171,000 jobs this month and i would add it is the trend for the pasten couple of months is higher, about 170,000 for fe the past couple of months and that's a good sign. one thing i would say is while that is better than average, the number of jobs created per month since the turnaround in early 2010 has been 140,000 a month so this is a little better than that. one disadvantage of that is you need 119,000 per month to keep with pace with population growth. a what this means is with 170,000 you are adding 50,000 per month. if you play it out it will take 13 years to make up for the jobs lost during the re
. that is a really big draw. >> this is a signature piece. this is the bill largest darkroom in the u.s.. >> there are a lot of people that want to get into that dark room. >> i think it is the heart of this place. you feel it when you come in. >> the people who just started taking pictures, so this is really an intersection for many generations of photographers and this is a great place to learn because if you need people from different areas and also everyone who works here is working in photography. >> we get to build the community here. this is different. first of all, this is a great location. it is in a less-populated area. >> of lot of people come here just so that they can participate in this program. it is a great opportunity for people who have a little bit of photographic experience. the people have a lot, they can really come together and share a love and a passion. >> we offer everything from traditional black and white darkrooms to learning how to process your first roll of film. we offer classes and workshops in digital camera, digital printing. we offer classes basically
spending. strong u.s. dollar, monetary policy. that is the intersection. if i could jump at the intersection when it comes to democrats is civil liberties. let's repeal the patriot act. would have never signed the national defense authorization act allowing for you and i to be arrested and detained without being charged by the u.s. government. let's bring around marriage equality and get out of afghanistan tomorrow, bring the troops home. lets in the drug wars. these are democratic issues, historically democratic issues but they aren't going anywhere today. just like republicans historically, their shoes have been about dollars and cents. neither one of the parties do well in the areas that they are supposed to do well. they are horrible in the areas that they don't do well then, meaning romney is horrible on civil liberties and obama is horrible when it comes to dollars and cents. >> as a libertarian is it a little tougher to get media attention away from the two-party system especially as the campaign goes on this far? >> for myself personally actually there's probably
' students, and if he won the u.s. senate seat, and speak to them. he did win the u.s. senate seat. rogers never heard from him so he called him up and he asked obama, would he come? and obam said, steve, i'm too busy. i'm getting phone calls from warren buffett and from steve jobs and bill gates and all these important people. and rogers said, you promised. and obama told him, well, you know, steve, you're not supposed to believe promises made by politicians, are you? and rogers got very angry. and demanded he show up. and eventually he did show up, obama. but the point of the story is that so many of the african-american leaders, businessmen and political people have spoken to for this book, told me similar stories in which they were there for him, for obama, on day one. they were what the call day-one people, supporting him, organizing for him, contributing to him, and that once he was elected to either the senate and then eventually to the presidency, they never heard again from him. there was a lack of gratitude. a lack of sense of obligation. and it wasn't only african-americans. it
today. question one: the u.s. consulate in benghazi was attacked twice, before the 9/11 fatal assault. in fact, in august, and repeatedly, security officials there asked for more urity, said they felt they were vulnerable. and, the situation was so dangerous, that the british diplomats and the red cross pulled out of benghazi. question: did the president know about that? >> chris, all i can tell you is, the president is fully committed to the safety of his diplomats and knew the ambassador and was deeply invested in his work there and, obviously, any steps that we needed to take, we would have wanted to take. so, you know, i mean, i'm not in the white house, i'm not privy to all of the discussions but i can tell you this: this president is 100% committed to the people of -- he sends overseas personally to represent the country and is the one who met the coffins when they came home, any suggestion that he would not take the necessary steps, to protect them, make some decision not to take the steps to protect them is nonsense. >> chris: david, i understand you are not in the white house

. >> in a final blow, a crucial democratic seat passed into republican hands. >> ted kennedy's leaving the u.s. senate, which he had occupied for 46 years until his dealt last year has been won by a republican. >> the president had lost the votes he needed to pass health care reform. his staff told him to scale back the bill or pause and return to it later. >> one of his senior advisers said to him, you know, mr. president, unless you're feeling lucky, i just don't think this is going to happen. >> i was making a joke to him. i said, look, my name is barack obama and i live in the oval office so i've got to be lucky. we felt although we knew it was going to be difficult to try to get it done. >> by all accounts when politics had seemed lost -- >> it is the right thing to do and that's why i've decided to get it done. >> -- barack obama decided to do it. >> that's an incredibly bold move. that's the way he moves. >> here's what i ask congress though. don't walk away from reform. not now. >> the president personally lobbied democrats to back his plan. then the bill was forced through the senate
-- in the case of romney, it will take one to two years for the dust to settle down. u.s., china relationship will come back an eventually stabilize because it's in the interest of both sides to keep a stable relationship. >> dominique, when you look at the european crisis, what i'm struck at is this may be the major international crisis where united states is really something of a bystander. it's not really involved much. it's involved on the margins. do europeans, is this part of the world? do europeans like this? do they wish the united states were more involved or are they thinking, you know what, we have the mechanisms to handle this and we're glad the obama administration is staying out? >> well, i think the europeans are witnessing the change, and it's not a question or liking it or disliking it. it's a reality. and from the standpoint, i think the europeans a bit like the chinese would say obama or romney, by the end of the day, it may not make such a big difference either on foreign policy or even in economic policy. but by the end of the day, the europeans support obama, i would say
's personal involvement that he could answer. the u.s. consulate in benghazi was attacked twice before the 9/11 fatal assault. in fact, in august, and repeatedly, security officials there asked for more security and said they felt they were vulnerable and the situation was so dangerous the british diplomats and the red cross pulled out of benghazi. did the president know about that? >> all i can tell you is the president is fully committed to the safety of his diplomats. he knew the ambassador and was invested if his work there. obviously, any steps we needed to take we would have wanted to take. i'm not in the white house or privy to the decisions but i can tell you this: this president is 100 percent committed to the people he sends overseas personally to represent this country. he is the one who met the coffins when they came him. any suggestion that he would not sake the next steps to protect them, that is just nonsense. >>chris: david, i understand you are not in the white house anymore but you did prepare the president and the vice president for safer debates where libya came up in one
and we can all take care of what concerns all of us within the u.s. >> there's so much stake being put into the friday jobs numbers, a lot of anticipation, four days, the last jobs report number, four days before election day, is there still discussion or is there some temporary fallout from those jobs numbers, the unemployment rate may have ticked up, but at the same time there was job creation there. >> there are positives and there are negatives, when you see the jobs growth over 170,000, that's a good sign, going up from 7.8% is not a good sign. but if you look at the overall month over month unemployment, you will see that unimemployment has dropped in six of those states. except for north carolina and colorado you have a democratic governor. but the policies that are implemented by the white house as well as on a state and local level, jobs are being created. the question is what kinds of jobs are being created. you see retail, hospitality and leisure. you still need the big highways jobs, because you still have the big ticket items, homes, cars, that can really get an economy gr
. . >>> three u.s. senators are calling for congressional investigation into the consulate attack in libya. they want to know whether the white house and the state department handled it properly. >> that is after a class by cable showed the state department knew about the security concerns before the attack happened. molly hennenberg has more. >> reporter: this classified cable was sent august 16th to the state department. that was less than one month before the september 11th attack in libya, and it describes how u.s. personnel on the ground were making contingency plans. the cable reads in part, quote, this daily pattern of violence would be the new normal for the foseable future. it went on to say, quote, personnel could co-locate to the annex, talking about the cia annex. if the security environment downgraded suddenly. it also revealed that they were concerned about the trustworthiness of the libyan militia. the 17 february brigade, which is protecting the consulate. noting that, quote, certain sectors of the 17 february brigade were hesitant to share information with the americans. o
results in subpar growth for extended period of time. it happened in the u.s. and happened in other countries. it is that sense different from a garden-variety of recessioif you want to call it that. melissa: peter, do you agree with that? we have ceo's on the all the time say that is the not the problem. they are held back by government regulation and too much debt and they blame in short for the president that we don't have a "v"-shaped recovery. >> i think there is element of that. deleveraging stopped about 20 months ago and consumer spending took off in the recovery and the recovery was strong in the beginning. so much we spent went abroad to china. we had currency imbalance. all that on imported oil. all that is lost purchasing power. my view this is not a typical business cycle. the u.s. economy is structurally broken and some of the things this administration has done made it worse. like the banking regulations in new york don't fix the banks. they make it impossible for them to bank. and so my feeling is that there is some arguments on both sides but i'm not very optimistic
that poor mr. romney is nothing but of that u.s. flake. flake.but a vacuous i voted for eisenhower when i was a young man. i worked in california for a movie actor who wanted to become governor. and i've seen nothing but the republican party in a degeneration mode. sarah palin. can you believe that? host: did you vote for ronald reagan in those years? caller: i voted for eisenhower. i voted for goldwater. the conscience of the conservative. now i see the degeneration of the republican party and it makes me sad because i believed in many of the principles. but the people that somehow they put forth by whatever forces there are controlling it, and i have no clue as to who is controlling it, it just dismays me and breaks my heart. host: let's hear from louis in oxon hill, md., on our independent line. caller: i'm going to vote for president obama. i believe in his vision. as a student, -- his prospects are so great for the country. every student should vote for him. in 2008, i voted for president obama and i am so pumped up again. i am so motivated. i am going to vote for president obama. i
in the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya is expected to be questioned by the fbi in the coming days. the u.s. first became aware of ali annie al harzi when he apparently posted details of the attack on social media while it was happening. he is currently being held in tunisia. the september 11th attack killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to america christopher stevens. >>> a new movie about the raid that killed osama bin laden airs tonight on the national geographic channel, but critics say the timing is political, designed to help the president just two days now before the election. our brian todd takes a deeper look at the controversy. >> we're going to be the team that takes out osama. >> reporter: it has the leave-life plot that can draw viewers. can it also draw voters, and is it designed to? s.e.a.l. team 6, a new tv drama about the bin laden mission, is set to air on the national geographic channel just two nights before the election. it has some real muse clips of president obama in it, depicting the president in the days surrounding the raid. and the film i
